Ofsted Big Listen – UVAC and FIN Seeking Views

Ofsted Big Listen – UVAC and FIN Seeking Views

DATE: Tuesday 7th May 2024 | 14:00 - 15:00

TOPIC: Ofsted 'Big Listen'


The Fellowship of Inspection Nominees (FIN) and UVAC are working collaboratively to gather feedback across the HE sector to feed into the “Ofsted Big Listen“.

Ofsted has provided a unique opportunity for the sector to feedback. It is important that we prioritise what really matters to help us drive the changes necessary for an appropriately robust and fair system that accurately reports quality.

Kerry Boffey, CEO of FIN, will share the findings from series of focus groups already held and information from the FIN survey WHICH WE INVITE YOU TO COMPLETE.

As a former inspector for 18 years and with involvement in inspection behind the scenes on a weekly basis with FIN members, Kerry is very aware of the positive aspects of Ofsted, pitfalls and inconsistencies.

With a new Chief Inspector we have an opportunity to respond to Ofsted’s ‘Big Listen’.

Key questions we will be exploring are:

1. What do you think about Ofsted?
2. What would you like to change about the inspection process or reporting?

We want to make sure feedback to Ofsted includes full representation from our members. With the government’s aim to increase the number of higher and degree apprenticeships available, it’s absolutely critical we have an inspection process that is fit for purpose!
